If you like tabletop RPGs like Dungeons or the official Star Wars RPG, Imperial attack is a good dungeon crawler lite.

A game usually lasts around an hour or two, so it’s pretty easy to hop on and off.

Treason in the house on the hill has established itself as the classic board game classic of all time, and if you already like it, maybe you will enjoy it Treason legacy.

It is a time of civil war. in the Star Wars: Rebellion, You can either play as the rowdy rebels and make strategic attacks to build your army and overthrow the empire. Or you can play as an empire and try to find and destroy the rebels’ hidden base.

At first glance, this may seem uneven in terms of the distribution of power, but that balance was one of the main highlights in Kotaku’s review of Star Wars: Rebellion:

It means that every Rebellion game really feels like the fight at the heart of the movie; the defeated rebels are constantly harassed and have to rely on the brave deeds of a few chosen heroes, while the Empire – although ridiculously powerful in the traditional sense – has to fire at needles in a haystack.

You can grab Star Wars: Rebellion for $ 139.22, down from $ 179.95.

I don’t recommend it Scythe enough. It is an engine building game that is about building your resources and conquering nearby areas. The special thing about this game is that it takes place in a fancy diesel punk reinterpretation of Europe in the 1920s, where bulky war mechs roam the landscape.

If you can’t party together Scythe also has a single player setting. If anything, your time for the absolutely fantastic art of playing by Jakub Rozalski is worth it.

You can currently pick up Scythe for $ 99 instead of $ 130.
